Going Swell

Surgery Went well and everything is going good. Dr Hawkins spoke with us and said that everything went very well and that he expects us to be out in 5 days or so. We had to wait about 20 minutes before we could see her so we waiting a long 20 minutes and then went and saw her.

She is doing really well and it progressing well, they expect to take out the breathing tube tonight they keep lowering the oxygen on the ventilator and she continues to breath on her own so they are going to do a spontaneous trial and then excavate her. Everything seems to be going well she isn't bleeding much and she is peeing a lot so she isn't holding much of fluids. Even though she looks really swelled up she is doing as they expected and everything is going good.

Thank you so much for all your thoughts and prayers we will continue to keep you posted.

Love The Andersons

I pray that things continue to progress well. What a blessing it would be to be home in 5 days. Hopefully before the 5 days are over I will be ill-free and can come visit.
Until then keeping your family in my prayers and sending (HUGS)
